Free-agent RB Alfred Morris (Cowboys) signed an undisclosed contract with the Arizona Cardinals on Tuesday, Oct. 22.

  Cowboys | Alfred Morris joining Dallas    Mon Jul 29, 09:36 PM

Free-agent RB Alfred Morris (49ers) agreed to terms with the Dallas Cowboys Monday, July 29. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Morris has experience with the team and they are carrying a lot of inexperienced players at running back. He's probably there more to soak up reps while Ezekiel Elliott is out than threaten for a regular season spot, but you never know.

  Saints | Alfred Morris visiting New Orleans    Mon Jul 29, 02:40 PM

Free-agent RB Alfred Morris (49ers) is reportedly meeting with the New Orleans Saints on Monday, July 29.

Footballguys view: Morris might be a threat to Dwayne Washington or Devine Ozigbo, but he won't push Latavius Murray for touches if he is signed. It is notable that the Saints are sniffing around free agent running backs. It could indicate some questions about the bottom of their depth chart.

  49ers | Alfred Morris probably will leave    Sun Feb 17, 06:11 PM

San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent Alfred Morris is not expected to re-sign with the 49ers this offseason.

Footballguys view: Morris is not the same player he used to be and might struggle to find a ton of interest. In 2018, Morris rushed for 428 yards (3.9 YPC) and two touchdowns in 12 games with the 49ers.

  49ers | Alfred Morris still No. 2 on the depth chart?    Thu Oct 18, 01:43 AM

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan indicated that RB Raheem Mostert seeing time ahead of RB Alfred Morris was not a permanent switch and instead related to what they felt was the best matchup against the Green Bay Packers.

Footballguys view: Mostert showed more burst than Morris has at any point this year. If the 49ers have to turn to a backup, Morris may get the first call, but Mostert will get enough work to show that gap again. Mostert is the one to carry in deeper leagues despite Shanahan's sentiment.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert is the primary backup to RB Alfred Morris with RB Matt Breida (ankle) on the shelf, but he is considered primarily a special-teams player who fumbled on his very first carry in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals.

San Francisco 49ers RB Alfred Morris (knee) is expected to play against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 4, according to a source.

  49ers | Matt Breida ready for Week 4    Sun Sep 30, 12:32 AM

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (knee) is expected to play against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 4 and is further along physically than RB Alfred Morris (knee), according to a source.

Footballguys view: Breida was downgraded from full to limited practice from Thursday to Friday so he and Morris are both risky plays this week. Breida's workload this week will hinge on how his knee feels, which could be subject to change during the game.

  49ers | Alfred Morris productive in road loss    Sun Sep 23, 06:10 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Alfred Morris rushed 14 times for 67 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Footballguys view: Morris ran well in this one and converted at the goal line, but the whole offense is in for a collapse if Jimmy Garoppolo is done for the year. Morris would be droppable in short bench leagues if that's the case.

  49ers | Alfred Morris stuck mostly in neutral    Sun Sep 9, 05:20 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Alfred Morris rushed 12 times for 38 yards in Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Footballguys view: Morris also had a costly fumble at the goal line. He started strong, but didn't do much after that. Let's see how he does against a less stacked defense next week against the Lions before doing anything drastic.

  49ers | Matt Breida listed as first-team running back    Tue Sep 4, 08:30 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida was listed ahead of Alfred Morris on the team's depth chart Tuesday, Sept. 4.

Footballguys view: Breida had a shoulder injury that knocked him out of the final three preseason games. It was not serious but the team wanted to be cautious with their young back. Even though he is listed as the starer, we should see the 49ers implement a RBBC with Breida and Morris.

  49ers | Alfred Morris a lock?    Wed Aug 29, 02:37 AM

San Francisco 49ers RB Alfred Morris appears to have made the team's 53-man roster, based in part on comments by head coach Kyle Shanahan that Morris may not play much in the club's final preseason game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Footballguys view: Morris was the lead back for the 49ers in the dress rehearsal for the regular season. With Jerrick McKinnon and Matt Breida still working back from injury, Morris may begin the regular season as the starter or lead back. Stay tuned.

  49ers | Alfred Morris a pleasant surprise    Sat Aug 25, 06:43 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Alfred Morris ran for 84 yards on 17 carries in his first game as a 49er Saturday, Aug. 25, against the Indianapolis Colts.

Footballguys view: Matt Breida and Jerick McKinnon are out so Morris gets the nod and shows why he still could be a value for NFL teams and Fantasy GMs. He's not being drafted at all in standard redraft leagues which makes sense as McKinnon is expected back in Week 1, but he's someone worth a very late flier or keeping an eye on off the waiver wire if he makes the roster.

  Jets | NYJ meeting with Alfred Morris    Sat Jul 28, 03:43 PM

Free-agent RB Alfred Morris (Cowboys) is meeting with the New York Jets Saturday, July 28, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Jets have to add depth at the RB position after losing Eli McGuire to a foot injury. His status is unknown at the time, but the second-year back is expected to miss significant time. Morris is quite unlike McGuire in many aspects. He's not the receiving threat that McGuire is and would be more of an addition for veteran depth at the position.

  Cowboys | Alfred Morris will not return    Thu Mar 15, 04:28 PM

Free-agent RB Alfred Morris (Cowboys) is receiving interest from several teams and will not re-sign with the Dallas Cowboys, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Morris never did much during his time with the Cowboys. With his veteran experience, Morris could easily fit into a backfield and be a spot starter if need be.

Footballguys view: Morris played well enough, but he didn't collect the late scores that could have put his fantasy teams over the top. He'll be an RB2 consideration against the Raiders next week.

Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris ran 27 times for 127 yards and a touchdown in a 38-14 win over the Washington Redskins Thursday, Nov. 30.

Footballguys view: Morris is back on the fantasy radar after getting the vast majority of the backfield work while the game wasn't yet decided. He has been running very well since Ezekiel Elliott went out and deserves RB2 consideration against the Giants next week.

  Cowboys | Alfred Morris expected to start    Thu Nov 9, 03:55 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris is expected to be the starting running back against Atlanta Falcons in Week 10 because of RB Ezekiel Elliott's suspension. RB Rod Smith would serve as the No. 2 running back and be a significant part of the game plan. RB Darren McFadden could be active as the No. 3 running back.

Footballguys view: While Morris is going to get the lead back slot, there's enough buzz around Darren McFadden and Rod Smith to make us leery of investing too much in Morris too soon. More than likely, we will need to see how this shakes out over the next couple of weeks. Morris is your best bet right now, but more as a flex or an RB3.

  Cowboys | Alfred Morris to receive start    Thu Nov 2, 02:15 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris will be the starting running back for the Cowboys in Week 9, according to a source.

Footballguys view: We like Morris, but he's no Ezekiel Elliott. Morris is a solid runner and we think he could be very effective, but against a tough Kansas City defense and with the potential Rod Smith or Darren McFadden could see significant work, we see him as a decent RB3 option.

  Cowboys | Dallas could use committee to replace Zeke?    Tue Aug 15, 01:04 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris may serve in a committee along with Darren McFadden during Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension, according to ESPN.com's Todd Archer.

Footballguys view: That makes sense, and it doesn't leave a ton for fantasy owners to get excited about. Behind Elliott, guys like Darren McFadden, Alfred Morris and Ronnie Hillman are competing to establish the pecking order. A two- or three-headed RBBC does not have value for fantasy owners in most every league.

  Cowboys | Rod Smith working ahead of Alfred Morris    Sun Jul 30, 03:12 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Rod Smith continues to work ahead of Alfred Morris as the third running back, according to ESPN's Todd Archer.

Footballguys view: Morris seems to be on the roster bubble, and unlike Smith, he can't contribute at fullback. If Ezekiel Elliott doesn't get suspended, Morris is more likely to be on the outside looking in when the season begins.

  Cowboys | Alfred Morris still likely to go    Tue Jun 20, 09:52 AM

Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris is still likely to be moved or cut before the 53-man roster is finalized, in the opinion of beat writer Jon Machota.

Footballguys view: Morris doesn't play special teams and that could cost him his roster spot. The Cowboys could use Darren McFadden as the primary backup behind Ezekiel Elliott. Morris may not be what he used to be, but there would be more than a few teams interested in his services if he hit the open market.
